According to the report, Kym may not be back on “DWTS” this season, but she’ll still be working in her home country of Australia.
"I will be taking the next season off from 'DWTS' USA, so that I may accept an amazing work opportunity back home in Australia. I am excited, nervous and humbled by this chance and look forward to sharing more about it with you soon,” Johnson revealed to fans.
Kym Johnson has won “Dancing With The Stars” twice since joining the show in its third season. The professional dancer earn the top title with partners Donny Osmond in 2009, and Hines Ward in 2011.
Kym has become a favorite among “DWTS” fans, and her absence will be noticeable in the upcoming season, which starts in Sept. Perhaps the show will bring in a new professional, or will bring back an old favorite such as Lacey Schwimmer.
"I wish all the dancers and celebrities in Season 17 nothing but love and success and hope to see you all back on the dance floor for Season 18," Johnson stated.
